Question about Garmin nuvi 650 GPS Receiver

1 Answer

Pressing Address gives me a state I don't want. How can I change it

When I press "Address," I get state and county--the state is one I was previously in and not where I want to go. However, I cannot change it here. I have tried all possibilities that seem reasonable and stuck. Please help!

    I'm having the exact problem and this is very very frustrating.

    My Nuvi 650 only shows my home state and county when I hit Where To. It use to ask which state? Perhaps I unintentionally changed some setting?

How to add a n address to favorites??


  1. Go to the screen that says WHERE TO and VIEW MAP
  2. Press WHERE TO and enter the address.
  3. Instead of pressing GO look at the bottom of the screen and you'll see a button that says SAVE
  4. Press SAVE and it will be saved to your favourites. You'll then get an option to give it a name. Type in something that you'll recognise again.
Alternatively if you drive to a location and you want to save it to favourites you can press the car icon which shows your location on the map and it will give you an option to save it.

Occasionally when you save a location the satnav gives it a default name. You can change this by going to Favourites.
  1. Press the name of the place saved
  2. Instead of pressing GO look at the bottom of the screen and you'll see an option to EDIT.
  3. Select EDIT and you can change the name to something you'll recognise.

How do i save favorites and is there enough room to have the name and address for the favorite. Garmin Nuvi 205


When you press Where To you can enter an address. If you want to save the address instead of pressing Go press Save. The address will be saved in favourites. You'll be asked to give it a name and you type in the name you want. The house number and street is usually saved with the name.

You can also save a location when you arrive there by pressing the car icon on the screen. When you press it it asks do you want to save the location. Press yes and it'll ask for a name for it. This way may save a street name as the address but not the whole address. If the location is not on a named road it'll save a Latitude and Longitude of the point. You can select the place in favourites and again instead of pressing GO press EDIT. Change the name to something you will recognise again.

So the answer is you can have the name but not the whole address.

I CANT GET MY GARMIN TO GIVE ME MY HOME ADDRESS IT IS GIVING ME ANOTHER STATE


if you recently updated the maps then you will have noticed a user interface change. press where to, then address, and at the first screen it will ask you to change county etc. do it there and then you should be able to navigate again.

p.s you will have to change the state each time you want to travel out of state if you do not know the co-ordinates.

hope that helps

Trying to change the state name


It will give you the most recent state, but to change it, look on the bottom row for the button labeled "Change State/Country." That outta do it.

Won't change states


I found a fix. Reset didn't work so I tried the Clear All Information. As you power on, press a finger on the lower right corner of the screen until a menu option appears asking if you really want to clear all information. Select yes. The manual says you lose all your favorites and other stored data, but I didn't lose anything and I can now select a different State!

Cannot select another state on Garmin 660.


1. From the Where To? View Map, Travel Kit page press WHERE TO

2. Press ADDRESS

3. Press SPELL STATE (should be the 2nd blue box on the page & may read SPELL COUNTY)

4. Press the letter K and Kansas + Kentucky will come up; Press the letter T and Tennessee + Texas will come up, etcetera

5. If the information does not automatically appear, hit DONE and the information will appear. For example on my nuvi 660 if I hit the letter “A” nothing happens until I hit DONE.

6. After pressing the single letter for the sate/province in which you are interested, the unit will prompt you to spell the CITY name.

You will then enter the information as it applies.
